We are so proud to celebrate our extraordinary local talent in HOME FOLK, a special Port Fairy Folk Festival virtual event streamed live from the Geelong Arts Centre on Friday 9 October.
HOME FOLK features three Port Fairy Folk Festival favourites: Sal Kimber, Fenn Wilson and Van Walker who will each perform a thirty-minute set, bringing the Festival-vibes to your screens at home.
Born and bred in the mountain valleys of Victoria, Kimber’s songwriting is stitched with tales of rivers, wild horses, flood, fire and the strength and vulnerability of the human spirit. Sal comes to the Geelong Arts Centre from Wangaratta in North East Victoria.
Awarded the Emerging Artist of the Year at Port Fairy Folk Festival in 2019, local Geelong resident Fenn Wilson is a multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter whose songs cover themes of heartbreak, love and redemption.
Currently based in Geelong, Van Walker is a Tasmanian native whose prolific songwriting productivity has seen him become a festival favourite. With over 500 songs across many genres under his belt, Walker has just released a new album Ghosting, with Jeff Lang and Dave Walker.
For 44 years we’ve been entertaining music lovers with our annual seaside event in Port Fairy. The 2021 Festival was put on pause due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, but we will return in 2022 with a wonderful, music-filled event on the long weekend in March 2022.
